Ruxley Complex – Klingers


Orpington BR5 3HY, United Kingdom

Fishery Information

This fishery is run by Orpington & District Angling Association.

Ruxley Complex – Klingers is a 1.5-acre gravel pit featuring large areas of yellow lily. The lake’s depth ranges from 2 to 6 feet, providing diverse habitat for various species of fish. This lake is connected to the River Cray system, resulting in a lower water quality compared to the spring-fed lakes within the complex. The mature banks of Klingers Lake are adorned with overhanging trees and bushes, creating ample cover for fish and offering excellent spots for anglers to present their baits.

What size do the fish go to?

Anglers fishing at Klingers Lake can expect to encounter a variety of fish species with decent sizes. The lake holds Bream reaching up to 10lbs, Tench up to 9lbs, Carp up to 26lbs, Rudd and Roach up to 2lbs, Perch up to 4lbs, and Pike up to 20lbs. These weights offer an exciting and rewarding fishing experience for anglers of all skill levels.

What tactics work well?

Considering the lake’s features, anglers may find success with tactics such as float fishing with appropriate baits for bream, tench, and roach. Ledger or float fishing with pike baits can be effective for targeting pike. The presence of yellow lily and overhanging vegetation suggests that presenting baits close to these features may attract fish seeking cover and food.

What facilities are on site?

As facilities can enhance the fishing experience, anglers are encouraged to inquire with the fishery management or relevant authorities to find out about the availability of facilities such as toilets, shelters, or refreshment areas.

Is parking available?

Yes, parking is available at Ruxley Complex – Klingers. The entrance to the complex is located opposite the CSBP (name of location or landmark). Anglers are kindly requested to open and close the gates after all entries and exits from the complex to maintain the safety and security of the area.
